Re: waving a hand!!


hey thanks porky69 i've had a couple of local contacts on it already so i know it works the only trouble is [sign in to see URL] have some kind of static or electrical noise problem.... i've tried ferrites to no effect and switched everything off around my house that i possibly can but it's still there?!?!....must be coming from next door..... it's not too much of a problem because it's not always there so i can tolerate it but it is annoying when it's there!!!!...nevermind.

Re: waving a hand!!


no it does work on any modulation(mode)its just it works best when the skip is running, ive spoke to scotland on the UK 40 FM(muppets)on my V.

interference.... right it could be a few things in your house, check some of these.

doorbell~when i goto bed i can hear mine humming, it doesnt iterfere with mine but worth mentioning.
TV/antenna booster~i get interference on my radio when the TV and booster downstairs are swithed on at the wall/socket(my TV antennas are in the loft with the V.
Computer/modems~are you running wireless? i'm not so dont have a problem although when i have computer on upstairs in room with the radio i get some interference from comp.
V near electric cables?~check theres no power cables near the V antenna as this can cause trouble.
Earths~worth checking you have a good earth, my radio is upstairs so i'm just using houshold earths but dont seem to get much bother.

Its very possible its coming from neighbours, in my mobile i get loads of diferent interference when passing diferent houses and have a constant 4 S points on the meter when parked in the carpark. i rekkon its all these wireless modems and stuff for computers, i dont remember this much interference yeares ago when on the radio emoticon

*edit*oh i forgot, my missis has one of these touch lamps next to the bed. you touch it like 4 times to switch it on diferent brightness, if i dont switch it off at the wall i get interference(i'll buy ner a new one soon that just switches on or off) emoticon
